Etre en Verve
Sparkling wine keeps this lightly grapefruity cocktail invigorating, and fragrant Lillet blanc makes it complex.
Like a mojito, but spicy with fresh muddled ginger and a splash of dry white wine. The name comes from the concoction that was served on Sir Francis Drake's ship to prevent scurvy.
A luscious post-dinner cocktail that features coffee-infused red wine and a simple syrup spiced with star anise. A drop of chocolate bitters brings it all together.
The Bitter Truth
This savory cocktail brings together juniper- and coriander-infused white wine and Bonal Quina, an aperitif that's flavored with gentian and cinchona. It's a little vegetal from the addition of celery bitters.
Complex, refreshing, and just delicately floral from a dash of rosewater and lavender-infused honey, this rosé-based cocktail is one of our favorites.
